    Pros

    Team is good and friendly. You can have some free time and work is not that busy. The team leaders and managers are really friendly.

    Cons

    This is more of an operation job, and opportunities are also more related to operations. This job cannot gain you the cfa/cpa experience.

    Advice to Management

    Hope to give more chances for promotion. And offer employees more opportunities to socialize and enjoy themselves.

    Pros

    It is a challenging environment with lots of opportunities to grow. It is very client centric and management is open minded when it comes to make a change

    Slow to adapt to the technological changes. Can be very operational centric and misses opportunities to move forward

    Focus on individuals who are team players , do not allow managers who are not transparent if the root cause of the I issues are their teams.

    Pros

    Pension and benefits if you are salaried.

    Cons

    Terrible supervisors and senior management always taking excessive time off or working from home. They don't have the time or interest to train or advise you on anything, and hate to be bothered. The office is chronically understaffed due to high turnover. Technology issues are extremely frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more support to staff, hire more people, and be present in the office. Show a willingness to support your employees by being there for them and listening to their concerns.
